Four things you need to know about The Forks

“The tacos everyone’s talking ‘bout
Fan-favourite food truck Habanero Sombrero (regularly found at 325 Broadway) is now open in the market, serving up authentic tacos exactly like you’d get down south. The menu, inspired by traditional Mexican street food, is pleasantly straightforward: mix and match two or three tacos, including carnitas, battered cod, sautéed mushrooms, and garlic chipotle shrimp. Add chips and homemade salsa, guac or queso, grab a cold Jarritos, and you might as well be beachside with a view of the Pacific—especially with the warm temps we’ve been seeing lately. Chicken or mushroom street quesadillas are also on the menu and highly recommended, especially for the kiddos.”CommunityVotes Winnipeg: Food Trucks

“If you feel like some authentic Mexican food but aren’t in the market for a trip down South, there’s always Habanero Sombrero. Serving up some of the city’s best tacos and salsas, the popular food truck can usually be found on Broadway.”
